Are you up for the Challenge? - Become a Joey Scout Leader!
Brisbane Central Scout Group are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic, exuberant person to join their Leadership team to support the Joey Scout Pack.
Joey Scouts includes boys or girls from 6 to 7.5/8 years old. Joey Scouts love to play games and try their hand at learning new skills whether that is hammering a nail, tying knots, putting up tents or rock hopping through creeks.
If you are looking for a new challenge, and feel you could contribute to our community by educating and guiding our Joey scouts, you may be just the person we are looking for.
Basic requirements for Leaders: • Enthusiastic & High Spirited • Willingness to Learn • Planning for weekly Troop Meetings • Open to embracing all cultural and spiritual backgrounds • Planning and attending regular adventurous outings and overnight camps/sleepovers • Being able to guide youth in a respectful manner that encourages them to feel safe and maintains and re-enforces positive behaviour • Ability to obtain a volunteer Blue Card
The Scout Law, which is the foundation for Australian Scouting, contains three main statements: Be Respectful, Believe in Myself, & Do What is Right. If you identify with our purpose, then a volunteer role as a Joey Scout leader may be perfect for you.
We meet on Tuesday’s from 6:30pm onwards at New Farm State School (during school term only). We also engage in weekend activities (such as camping or hiking) once or twice a school term.
Scout leaders do not need scouting experience; however, it is beneficial. Any experience with youth and the outdoors is also helpful, though we have comprehensive free training (as well as mentors) to support you.
“I have over and over again explained that the purpose of the Boy Scout and Girl Guide Movement is to build men and women as citizens endowed with the three H's namely, Health, Happiness and Helpfulness. The man or woman who succeeds in developing these three attributes has secured the main steps to success this Life.” – Baden-Powell, Founder of Scouting
